If you're running in full screen, create a new tab then return to normal screen mode.  You'll notice that the location bar remains inactive and you cannot enter a web address.  You can use the Ctrl-L shortcut to regain location bar functionality, but I feel it should return automatically.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run browser in full screen (F11) [make sure the bar is hidden at the top]
2.create a new tab (Ctrl-T)
3.return to normal view (F11)
4.type in address bar and try to go to a site.  you'll notice that the text is italicized and non-actionable.
Actual Results:  
the location field was inactive.

Expected Results:  
it should have allowed me to put in www.mozilla.com and press enter to visit.
Should be fixed in 3.5.6.
